Waugh’s work has and will endure. Leicester University and Oxford University Press have embarked upon The Complete Works of Evelyn Waugh – 42 volumes – to be published from 2017. Under the general editorship of Alexander Waugh, with a panel of eminent scholars, it will be worth waiting for. In the meantime, while Selina Hastings’ biography from 1994 remains the best, Eade’s sympathetic, well-researched, not in the least analytical but abundantly anecdotal portrait will whet the appetite of any Wavian.
There is also a review in the current issue of the Catholic Herald in which “Michael Duggan goes looking for Evelyn Waugh’s soft side.” That article is behind a paywall.
